Thanks Ceo

They actually held up ok. The frame sliders, swingarm spools, clipon and REARSETS (Rearsets were brand new and went on the night before ) absorbed most of it.

Rearset


Tail section got a lil shredded and the mounting points broke.


Upper wasn't too bad, mainly cracked the paint. Mounting points intact.


Some duct tape on the tail section and lots of cable ties and it was ready to go back out! That's why I figure they held up ok....they were still usable.


I tried messing with glass and bondo but realized I suck and have no patience so I just bought a new set.




For the price, fit and overall quality, I woud say they are pretty good.

That rearset looks like it did a great job keeping the bike off the ground.... solid mount footpegs FTW!!!

Did the bolt that holds the footpeg in bend at all? Was it easy to get it off?

Those plastics held up great from what I can see. How fast were you going when you went down?

By the way that last picture is friggin awesome. Nice form.

And we have the same boots!

The bolts were a lil bent but not too difficult to get off. It wasn't that fast of a turn, one of those tight ones where you can get real low. I think I got a lil careless with the throttle coming out and it just spun out from under me...I'd say like 45-50 mph. It was weird, kinda like running over the banana peel on super mario kart.

How do you like the boots? I really like them except they squeak like a mofo. I just got me some new Corsa Airs, haven't ridden on them yet but I tried them on around the house and they seem to fit even better...and no squeak!

45-50 isn't too bad...

Mine are vertigo airs and I love them... haven't had any squeaking issues with them, either. Those corsas will be nice, but they were too much bling as well as money for me...

Yeah on the track, it was like a "textbook" lowside so it wasn't too bad. I'm just thankful and glad it was on the track!

The Power Race Mediums are tires you can buy at most moto-shops, including online vendors. PRC and PR5 are usually sold at the track. Both sets were good but the PRC front and PR5 were noticeably better. Tire profile is a bit more aggresive making the contact patch a bit bigger while at lean and I believe the compound is a bit softer as well.
I agree. I have the PRC/PR5 combo as well. I didn't feel ANY bad feedback from these tires when I hit the track last September. Definately a pretty penny though. Mine were around $400. Can't wait to get back to the states and put another TD on 'em.

It's a good mod. Really helps when getting on the brakes.

Yeah, I was doing around that speed when I went down at the track... actually slower probably like 35.

I've got one, just haven't had a chance to throw it on yet. I'm still thinking about trying to find an 08 gas tank conversion...
